The steamer Almada thai arrived last even ing from Australia brings news ol a dar ing, although liitue, insurrection mm broke out in Honolulu, Tuesday, July 30. Two half breed Hawanans named koiii. Wilcox and Kobt. Hoyd, who had hem sent at L'ovcrnmcut expense to be educated at the Italian military school, had been plotting an insurrection ioi sonic time, but the rumors that were cur rent were little heeded until the move ment culminated in an armed hand ol ibout 130 natives marching Ironi Pulanm in Honolulu two miles, and securing an entrance to the palace grounds in Hono lulu. All was ciuiet UUl lIllz llic mum., m though in most of the natives houses lights were burning at miiiuigin.. noom. 8 a. ni. an unusual number ot nativesand t'liin.-imeii were seen on the streets as ll somcthiiiL' very uncommon was about to happen. But while the people went 1 1, Im'iI as usual the rebel rioters formed it I'alania. am about 3 a. in. incsday m.-irchcil from that suburb to to the city. Arriving at the Manka gate ot the palace it 4 a. m., thev knocked at tins gate aim demanded admittance; when, alter some parleying, they entered the grounds un opposed. 1 he raiaina rioters wcicjoinn bv other so uads from other local cities ainl at one time the rebels upon the palace irroiinds must have iiuml)ered about 250. The Knur was absent irom tne p.-iuuc at the lime the alarm was given. He was telephoned to and the royal party then hastened to the King's boat house, where thev remained during the day, guardci bv a number of household troops. Mean while the rebels summoned Lieutenant P.-irker to surrender the palace, hut that olliecr refused to surrender. A general al.-u-ni was spread throUL-hoiit theeity by means o the tc ephonc, and tne iioiioiiuu Killes were immeiliatclv ordered to rcpoi al their armory. There was u great dea I exeiti nient. especially among the Port- uiiiicsc and (.lltncsc. j uiiiiiiici oi ii"iii"-" lied to the top of the lull, and a lew la dies took refuge at the American legation where a corps of marines Ironi the I', h. steamer Adams was stationed. A cabi net council was held, and with the three ministers present were convened the American, British, French and Portu guese commissioners, t-api. vtoouwaio ol the I'. S. steamer, also neuig present. The cabinet decided to demand the sur render of Wilcox. S. M. Damon was ap pointed to cany out the demand; but 1.1m niiusioii proved to be unsiicccsslul. Several shots inn) povy iccn exchanged on both sides. Hy 1 1 ii. ni., the rioters had all taken shelter in the house termed the "Bunga low," situated on the palace grounds, while the Honolulu Killes had secured a splendid position commanding this. Shots were fired from both sides at inter vals. Finally a corps of government vol unteers began hurling giant powder bombs at the Bungalow. About this time thjrty or more rioters surrendered, oneol whoin hiul been fatally shot. Farlv in the skirmish, Robert lioyd, chief lieutenant of Mr. Wilcox, wa se verelv wounded ill two plates, ll is stated that Wilcox shot two of his men who he noticed were about to desert. Win le this bombardment against the Bungalow lasted, sharp shooters from thcoperti house kept up a steady and furi ous fusiladc, until finally, after hours of lionibardmcnt, the rioters rushed irom the building paying a white sheet upon a pole anil shouting "peace." The surren der gates were thrown open, ami a forci. of volunteers entered and took the whole of the rioters prisoners, The tiring ceased about 7 p. m and Wilcox was inarched to the station house at 7.15 p. m.. his comrade prisoners arriving at the lock up a few minutes later, Among those opposed to the rioters, the only serious casualty was a wound in the shoulders received by Lieutenant Piirker. and it is supposed it was from a shot fired by Wilcox. On the side of the rioters there were seven natives killed and twelve wounded, several seriously. The armed patrol which was organized to watch theeity during the lightsand aft erwards was composed of the Honolulu Killes, the Blue Jackets, and tne marines from the I'nitcd States steamer Adams, and the Citizens' Volunteers, as hpceiul constables, besides the whole polite force. There were, however, no attempts at incendiarism. There were plans of a program said to have been formed by Wilcox in each riot that he made. One ,-,.iioi l was to the effect thai he intended to secure the crson of King Kalakua and compel him id abdicate in favor of his sister lllvokalaui. heir apparent, and demand a new constitution and new cab inet. Honolulu paers state this was probably the plan proposed, either in whole or in a modified form. But mal lei s were kept so very secret thai the exact reasons arc yet unknown. Com nientiui' on the "situation, the Com mercial Advertiser, of Honolulu, says: The insurrection, although long pre meditated and planned, was one ol the most silly and hopeless attempts to over turn the Hawaiian government that could lie attempted. Nothing but gross ignorance ol the situation couui uac prompted any such attempt; and had the rioters lieen white men, a lunatic asylum or a heniiK-n cravat would have been the most suitable punishment mat couui have lieen meted out to them." The oncra house, palace, government buildings and many private dwellings were more or less damaged hy bombs. An inquest was in progress on the bo dies of those killed in the riot when the steamer Almada left Honolulu August !

Axed and Indigent Sufferers who are Compelled to Rely I'pon the Charily of Ihe County for Main tenance and Medical Attention. Located in the southwestern portion of the city and adjoining the corporate limits of the suburban village of Victoria, is a long row of low, substantial build ings, forming three sides of a square. The buildings are comparatively new, and appear to have been excellently con structed. They arc plain and neat, and in and about the porches ami grounds surrounding the place, quite a munlier of igcd and decrepit cop!e arc grouped ibout. Some walk with difficulty, using sticks or crutches, while others set in iw chairs, or on stools, unable to move ront sheer physical exhaustion or broken ir deformed limbs, while still others lay stretched upon clean Itctls, in neat and heery rooms, suffering from diseases om which they cannot possibly hope to eeover, owing to extreme old age, and the ineurablencss of their maladies. The buildings above mentioned repre sents the alms house or poor house of Buncombe, and the people, Tim CiTiziix now talking about, arc the unfortunate poor of the county, unable to take care f themselves ill their declining years ind forced to rely upon the common harity of the people, taxed for their maintenance and support. It is a small ix anil is cheerfully paid by the people. The management of the poor house is vested in the Board ol Commissioners of the county, and is most creditable and atislactory, indeed. The physician to the poor is Dr. H. B. Weaver, who is also county superintendent ol health. The matron of the house is Mrs. Bickerstaff, mil it most competent official she is. Al present there arc about thirty-live annates under her charge, the sexes be ing nhoul evenly divided. The average tge of these people is about fifty years. while in one or two instances, some of the paupers have passed the three-score mile and ten years of life. One or two more of these unfortunates are young in years, sullering from inherited diseases, or rendered helpless for life by accident deformity ol limbs, in some easts tilling from birth. All ol them complain of physical Iron Its, and all of them are real sufferers to i greater or lesser extent. Of the ai'- menls that aiinct I lie poor in lite anus house, Dr. Weaver mentioned to the re porter a lew, such as tuberculosis, chronic heiimatism, epilepsy, paralysis of the nerves, general physical exhaustion ut- ident to extreme old age, dropsical liseases in their varied complications, etc. In ninnv, if not entirely, all ol these cases. t permanent cure can never In-cllcctcd. ind the only relief the patients find is of t temporary character. No county in North Carolina has done more or is doing more lor us unioriu ualc poor than Buneomlie, and Tiik Citizi-:n doubts very much if there can be found in tile whole Stale an almshouse that is better managed or kept in a leaner, neater and lietter general sani tary condition than ours, liaeh room is lathed and plastered, supplied with kt- Icct ventilation, clean Itcds and bed clothing, a grate in every fire-place, the floors scoured almost to w hiteness itself, and the grounds surrounding in a wcll draincil and perfectly clean condition. The water used on the place is from a well is sweet, pure, cool and sparkling, ami the supply inexhaustible. A large farm and garden adjoins the almshouse, and from these the table is abundantly supplied with all kinds of vegetables in season. Besides vegetables, there are always fresh meats, such as beef, mutton, pork, chickens, etc., served in nici slute and in the greatest quan tity. I'ows furnish a sufficient supply of milk I'm cooking, medical and other pur poses, and altogether the Buncombe paupers set down lo a feast three times each day. All ol thcin say they arc well fed and could not wish fiir any improve ment in that quarter. The cost ol keep ing a patqter. its we hit vetlescrilicd above, is about four dollars per head a month. There is no waste of anything owing to the matron's suiHTior methods ol maii- igeincul, anil everything sent to the in stitution is strictly ami satislactonly accounted for at the end of every month. Dr. Weaver, the physician in charge, is almost a daily visitor at the almshouse. His duties are onerous and responsible, ami his ierformancc of them has gained for him the respect and confidence of the commissioners and the people. He visits each ward, examines each patient, an swers a thousand and one questions, writes the necessary prescriptions, and is v.ry kind to the poor under his care. He also insK'i ts t he wards ami premises at each visit, and is uly was vigilant and attentive. He looks out for the welfare of the poor anil the interests of the tax payer at the same time, and comes as near as il is possible to come, in doing even-handed justice to all concerned. Chairman Kaukin, of the Board of Commissioners, is also a frequent visitor to Ihe alms house, looking niter tne wants of its inmates and seeing that everything goes right out there. Take it as it stands lo-day, Buneomlie has cause to lie proud of the institution she has erected lor her jioor and aged, and the officers her Board of County Commissioners has selected to control and direct its affairs. They cannot 1 improved upon, and The Citizen only wishes that every county in the State paid as much attention to its destitute The Flower Mission will purchase its drugs for this month from Dr. Grant and poor as does the glorious county of Bun its groceries at Mr. J. M. Y'oung's. I combe.
